As the British MeFites would say: that man's got his chopper in the chopper!

That is so badass.

I guess I'm the only one finding this somewhat... erm... necrophilic. Someone please tell me I'm not.

Perfect for those days when you just have to get out on the open road and have anal sex with a skeleton.

Freaking awesome. Is that the gas tank on the back above the tire?

Yeah. With the black t-shirt on.

Eesh, hit a bump and get a titanium pelvis in the groin. No thanks.

Can someone tell me where the front brake is? or is it truly a suicide machine?

Neither are you.

I could have sworn it was going to be this motorcycle riding skeleton.

The longhair looks like the type to buttfuck a skeleton.

Appearing soon in a USA Network original series, I'm sure.

I'm really not a big fan of choppers, but I got to admit, there is some serious artistry there. The one thing I would have changed is the handlebars; they just jut out of the back. I probably would have gone with something like truncated wings .

MOO-HOO-HOO-HOO-HO-HO-HA-HA-HA-HAAAA!!!

This wouldn't be my first choice for a motorcycle but its pretty amazing and really well done. The sodomy angle means he gets lots of strange looks while passing cars, especially if he's rocking to some tunes.

Still, pretty superb work.

I wish I could find the image of the motorcycle that was basically the same as this but was a woman's body instead a skeleton.

That's cool.

A friend bought a Ninja that had been custom painted with a naked woman on it so it looked like you were riding down the road while, er, riding down the road, if you follow. His wife paid for a new paint job.

Nifty concept, good execution.

But it's the handling that must be truly terrifying.

Even better, in my opinion (with automobile engine!)

A better Halloween bike costume (because it was, well, a costume) was one I saw at Hampshire College back in the early 90's.

Kid did up his bike in a papier mache lobster shell. He set up the claws to open and close when he hit the throttle.

If you've ever been to the Hampshire Halloween party, you can imagine the ruckus it caused.

Damn, vaportrail! I agree.

Every year while I was at Hampshire ('79 - '83) at least one person would show up naked. Standing in line for beer, I heard an Amherst guy say to a naked longhair, "Man, you sure have balls."

Lots of hat, no cows.

I'm amazed how much damn work people will go to crafting hard tail V-twins with modified springer front suspensions. This is not a bike I would want to ride, and although it is, in its own way, a testament to artistic vision and craftsmanship, it is, overall, One Bad Idea Piled On Another. And one that would get old looking at, and cleaning, in less than a week.

Great find boo_radley. Great find.

I still find the viberider more amusing.

I'm squinting my eyes trying to figure out whether that thing has a female or a male pelvis.

Also, I'd like to see night photos with those lampy eyes shining and streetlights reflecting off the bones.
